Modernising RISC OS in 2020: is there hope for the ancient ARM OS?

What I am hoping to do here is to try to give a reality check on some of the more ambitious goals for the original native ARM OS, which remains one of my personal favourites to this day.

Asterisk

The asterisk has a long history. The first appearance of this simple mark was probably on a cave wall somewhere, but we like to assign inventions to known individuals, so the inventor of the asterisk was: Aristarchus of Samothrace, in about 200 BCE.

JavaScript Improvements

In this article I go over three things that, in my mind, would make JavaScript better. None are new ideas. This post is an expansion of a tweet I had when I saw someone asking about improvements for JS. (though probably are impossible for various reasons). I’m going to be primarily speaking about browsers and the web, though much of this might apply to Node.js (though I’m not as familiar with that area so I can’t speak on it confidently).
